Another question you could ask them is, “What should my bf/gf do to win your trust? Remember, most of the time they are right and who wants to gamble with the few times they might be wrong, just for the sake of having a bf/gf.
Ask your parents if they would be willing to meet with your bf/gf and have them explain their reservations to him/her.
Your parents can help you answer that question without all the emotional fog you are experiencing.
It is worth pushing pause on your anger and emotions and considering whether your parents may be right.
They have the advantage of perspective…they realize over 90% of high school dating ends up not working out.
Parents remember their own good and bad choices while dating.
They just want you to be protected from bad consequences which could affect the rest of your life. They have fears of unwanted pregnancy, date rape, drug use, physical abuse, or simply having their children get a needless and unnecessary broken heart.
